We had one charter head offshore this morning. They went "live baiting" for King Mackerel and boated some nice size Kings. They reported cold conditions, however, the fishing action kept them busy and warm! Highway 12 is underwater during periods of high tide due to a big ocean swell in Avon and Rodanthe. Stay safe out there and remember that water approaching from the east IS salt water!

Mason Fow of Canton, NC: 34 lb. King Mackerel on Predator.
Meredith Ferguson of Vale, NC: 41 lb. King Mackerel on Predator.

We hope that everyone had a wonderful feast for Thanksgiving. It's that time of the year to be grateful for everything and everybody! A blustery North wind blew in last night bringing cold temperatures and big seas. No one fished Wednesday through today. Let's hope the weekend brings milder conditions so that charters can resume. In the meantime - enjoy leftovers from your feast - you can add fish to your Christmas festivities!

It feels like November all of a sudden with colder weather on the way. Sounds like Tuna weather is just around the corner. Inshore boats did not fish today. It was slow fishing offshore although they managed to get on a few good bites. Some charters went live baiting for King Mackerel. Others found a few schools of Dolphin (bailers and gaffers). A few nice class Wahoo and Blackfin Tuna were brought to the fish box. One Sailfish was released. Thanksgiving is on the way - get on a charter and experience the bounty of the sea along with your feast!
